Whenever there is a particular piece of consumer electronics that is being prepared for its arrival to the US market, it will need to go through the hallowed halls of the FCC. One of the most recent candidates to do so would be the Sony Vaio Duo 11 which has been spotted. In fact, late last month, we saw leaked images of the Sony Vaio Duo 11 before it was officially revealed just a couple of days after the leak. This Windows 8-powered slider device is now safe in the hands of the FCC, where it is confirmed to carry 802.11n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, boast of NFC support, and has its signature stylus to boot.
No idea on whether 3G or 4G/LTE connectivity will be supported, but all things will be revealed in due time. Needless to say, since it has already arrived at the FCC, you can bet your bottom, hard-earned dollar that the device is being prepared to roll out to the masses very, very soon. The European model should arrive sometime in late October, so hopefully North America will follow suit – synchronized, even, s’il vous plait.
